However, due to the pandemic situation, only seven informants who garnered the highest monetary rewards were invited to attend the ceremony. They are Informants “RIC”, “ECO”, “EMO”, “JUN”, “MUSANG”, “SERPENT” and “FERDI”.

The Private Eye Rewards Committee is composed of members from the academe, non-government organizations, law enforcement, religious and business sectors, who deliberate and approve the granting of cash rewards to confidential informants.

“Operation Private Eye” is one way of encouraging the public to help the government’s anti-drug campaign by providing cash reward in exchange for information resulting in the seizure of illegal drugs and arrest of drug personalities,” said Villanueva, adding that informants remain anonymous for their security and protection.
